“ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

Villa La Riante is an absolutely lovely Villa in a wonderful city, it is just a nice French city, 20 mins outside of Paris. This small Bed and Breakfast has only 4 rooms, very nicely appointed. The owner Kristie makes everything look nice for her guests, lovely furnishing, nice upscale dining, delicous breakfast, nice assortment of Teas and Coffee available. Villa La Riante is right across from the Metro Train, 2 mins walk to entry way, if your room is on the front end of the Villa facing the train, you will see it going by, but with window close you barly hear it, and what you did hear, is not a problem, the trains are not loud. Walking distance to stores/resturants. 3 block from Josephine Bakers house. Everything is just nice. If any downfall, I would have to say, the beds were not made daily, it was left up to us to make our own bed, nor the towels refreshed. But we only stayed a couple days, so it wasn't a problem, also, no way to use computer to check in and print boarding passes. But again, just do it at the airport, lastly which is important book your own taxi if you need it, if not it can be a bit pricey, it will surprise you. But as I said, I loved this place, I would stay here again in a heartbeat, It is a lovely, charming Villa in a absolutely wonderful town. Loved it.

Room Tip: All rooms a nice, take your pick.

We stayed 11 nights at La villa La Riante and it was simply amazing, we stayed one night August 31st then came back for ten more, September 10 to the 21st 2013. Our hosts Kristie and Jim made our trip and vacation even better, making us feel like friends Their home is beautifully maintained and they did an amazing job to restore it Our room was large and comfortable, very quiet with all amenities ,we had a strong wifi connection. we were always greeted in the morning with a great fresh breakfast with a smile Kristie was always available to answer any questions thru our stay and even recommended a few things The home is very well situated very near to the train services with a quick 20 minutes easy ride to Paris If you do not want to go in Paris, the place Le Vesinet is more then welcoming for you to walk around with many restaurant , market, shops and awesome bakeries The common living area and terraces are quiet and charming, always feel at home We are definitely giving this B&B the best rating for our trip in France and will recommend it to anyone traveling to or near Paris. We will be back to La Villa La Riante for sure if our paths takes us back to France Sincerely thank you Kristie and Jim.

Along with my husband, two teenage children and mother we enjoyed a fabulous two-night stay in three of the four bedrooms at Villa La Riante.

The house has been beautifully renovated with lovely bedrooms, great bathrooms/shower rooms and very comfy beds. There is also a very nice ‘salon’ on the ground floor to relax in, which is beautifully appointed.

Kristie is a great hostess, very friendly and with lots of local knowledge. Her breakfast menu is delicious and you will eat far more than you would normally as it is so good. We took our breakfast around a lovely large dining table in a very nicely furnished period breakfast room.

La Riante is very conveniently located just round the corner from the Metro station, as well as a fantastic artisan bakery and plenty of other useful and practical shops. Le Vesinet is also a great base to venture into central Paris from, being only a short train ride away, as well as being a lovely area and very nice to wander round in its own right.

We definitely will return again!

I can't begin to say how wonderful our stay was at La Riante!!! It was our first trip to Europe and I decided to stay here entirely based on reading the reviews and researching the B&B....it was amazing!! The location is fabulous and we followed Kristie's directions and took the train from the airport....we were nervous but it all ended well no problems!!! The location is truly just steps from the train, but as other people noted we did not hear any noise in our room from the trains. We went to Paris for the day and it was a welcome relief to arrive back at La Riante....quiet and perfect for relaxing!!! We will be back next time with our girls!!! Thanks for everything Kristie!!!!

A beautiful home, great rooms, wonderful breakfast, cute town, easy to get to the heart of Paris (20 min!) and a lovely hostess!

Whether on business or with friends/family this beautifully renovated and maintained home is a relaxing place to have some down time. The suburb has everything you need so you don't HAVE to go into Paris proper, if you don't want too. If you are going into the city though, it is quick and easy with no problems.

Breakfast is also a big plus..... plenty of goodies fresh from the patisserie, and lots of other staples available too to start your day off well.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the room that overlooks the backyard garden. Delightful!

If you want to really experience French life and yet not have to stay in Paris, this is the place to stay. Excellent value. Le Vesinet is just 20 minutes by train to Paris. Villa La Riante is only 1 minute from the train station. A great combination. The accommodations are excellent. We loved our room. Very quiet with double glazed windows that seemed soundproof. We never heard the trains. The owners take great pride in keeping the hotel is great shape and in providing all they can for you. Breakfast is delicious, filling and included. Kristie gave us a wealth of information to help guide us around. The town is on your doorstep. And everywhere you look it is green and lush. Le Vesinet is a full of trees, greens and lakes. A quick train ride the other direction takes you to Saint Germain-en-Laye which is a delightful town complete with chateaux and grand jardin.

Le Vesinet is a really pleasant suburb of Paris, so Villa La Riante offers a peaceful place to stay that is also very convenient for RER stops in the heart of the city. Trains are extremely frequent and run pretty late, a return journey costs around 8 euros and takes about 20 minutes, Everything everyone has written here (as of May 2013) is entirely spot on. Kristie is an entirely gracious host and the house is absolutely beautiful.

Room Tip: The front of the house is gorgeous!
